E100-48: Daniel 6:1 - 6:28: Introducing Daniel




In this 5 minute recording I try to introduce Daniel, a book that has been placed among the prophets in Christian Bibles (following the tradition of the old Greek translation) but is not a "prophet" in the Hebrew Bible. The book contains two sorts of material, stories about Daniel, like this one "Daniel in the Lions' Den", and records of Daniel's visions, which seem to speak in a half hidden coded language. The visions are rather like Revelation in the New Testament, and scholars class both as "apocalyptic" (from the Greek for uncover or reveal what is hidden). The stories are most like the stories of Joseph and Esther.

I also suggest that reading chapter 6 (Daniel in the Lions' Den) with chapter 3 (The burning firey furnace) adds an important link between Daniel and the Christian message in the New Testament.
